Edward Simpson (pictured) continued his challenge to take 100 penalties to raise £100,000 for brain tumour research at Cirencester Arena on Friday 21st January. Cirencester Phoenix Walking Football Club goalkeeper, John Kirkman, faced up to Edward’s 24th penalty and was well beaten by a firmly struck shot into the bottom left corner. So far Edward has raised just under £50,000, and with over 75 penalties still to take, is well on track to meet and hopefully exceed his target.
Brain cancers are the biggest cancer killers of children and adults under 40, yet research into these cancers is hugely underfunded. Edward’s own treatment was lengthy, gruelling, but successful and he doesn’t want anyone else to suffer unnecessarily, so he started this campaign.
